Fact Sheets

Vanier Institute fact sheets offer readers statistics and data on various family-related subjects in a single-page format. Each fact sheet is a straightforward and convenient resource for learning about Canadian families, providing statistics in a clear manner with hyperlinks to all cited sources. This feature is designed for the media, educators, students, social service professionals and anyone interested in understanding families in Canada.

Fact sheets are updated periodically when new data is available (prior versions of updated fact sheets are archived, but are available upon request).
